Short while back I started having mouse freezes, which gradually got worse,
including occasional 'passenger syndrome' as various menus and windows
would pop up, as I watched wondering what the hell was going on.
Turned out to be my mouse, which is an M$ Intellimouse with scrollwheel.
It's not much more than one year old so I'm not impressed. The other draw
back, was that the scroll wheel although useful isn't that comfortable with
heavy use, I'm wondering if the types with raised scroll buttons are more
comfortble, although perhaps you loose the 'middle' button feature of a
scroll whell, which I've got used to.
Unfortunately the XFree site, and distro compatability pages seem to have
little to say on mice, so I'm wondering what others are using, and what
currently available mice work well with XFree4?
Are any of the Mouse manufacturers Linux friendly, or do they just ignore
it, and leave the XFree team to write drivers by reverse engineering?
